This photo was taken at the Atlanta Botanical Garden last Friday night. It was the member preview night of their new exhibit of Henry Moore sculptures. I started taking pictures of these human like sculptures at the entrance to the exhibit as soon as I saw them. I am kind of familiar with Moore’s work and I was thinking to myself as I looked through the viewfinder that I did not know Moore did such realistic sculptures. Right then a woman who was looking really closely at one of the sculptures suddenly shrieked “it’s breathing” and started laughing hysterically. It was only then I realized that the sculptures were actually alive. A short time later these kids walked up to the sculpture. Their expressions captured my sense of disbelief.
